Cambridgeshire Constabulary said it had received an increasing number of reports of youngsters riding mopeds dangerously in residential areas.

Police said@ “We are treating this as a priority and have plans in place both frontline and behind the scenes. We need community reporting and intelligence to help us ID these people, as catching them in the act is an exceptionally risky strategy.

Crime reduction officer Amanda Large said: “Please try to give us as much information as possible about the offenders: time and place of the incident, visual descriptions and names and addresses if you know who they are.”

The incidents have mainly been happening after school hours and weekends and offenders have been using various types of vehicles including mopeds and quad bikes.
